If the reference in the question is to the American Civil War, I do not believe that Jesus was referring to it, or to any other conflicts like it that arise from political causes. Rather, he was referring specifically to disagreements or hatred (even within the same family and to the point of death) that would arise between people who would believe in Him as the Messiah versus those who would not.
